Nugent was a child actor, first appearing on screen at age six in It Had to Be You (1947), where she and her sister Carol portrayed the same character at different ages. A few bit parts in forgettable films was followed by her landing a regular role in television's first family sitcom, The Ruggles (1949–52). Her film career then took off with supporting parts in several mid-fifties dramas, including Magnificent Obsession (1954) and There's Always Tomorrow (1956). One of her best-remembered roles was as Jet Maypen for the Walt Disney Presents: Annette serial on The Mickey Mouse Club. As she reached adulthood, her parts were mainly guest appearances on television shows, including the ABC/Warner Brothers western series, Sugarfoot.
